  • 5 Perfect Dresses For A Thanksgiving Dinner Party

    Thanksgiving is almost here! As of today, you're 10 days away from delicious Thanksgiving food. Which, of course, also means that it's time to put together that perfect outfit for your Thanksgiving dinner party. Whether attending your own family dinner, your significant other's dinner, or a friend's, you'll want to be dressed for the occasion.

    Most Thanksgiving dinners are pretty casual, but some can be more dressy, so make sure to find out the dress code ahead of time. If you'd like to go with a nice pair of jeans or pants and sweater, last week we showed you our 5 favorite sweaters for holiday parties (or gift giving!). Rocking a dress is always a go-to option, as well, though, so today we're showing our our 5 favorite dresses for a thanksgiving dinner (which are of course also perfect for any other holiday party you may have coming up). These dresses are all conservative enough for a family dinner, while still being so on-trend. Check them out below!

    Lace Fit And Flare Dress

    Long Sleeve Lace Mini Dress

    Black lace is always a staple for the holidays, and we love it in this Long Sleeve Lace Mini Dress. This lace dress features a sexy illusion back, long sleeves, and a v-neck with a keyhole. The long sleeves makes this dress so perfect for the colder fall and winter months. This dress also comes in the color Ivory if you'd like to rock the Winter White trend.

    Crochet Fit and Flare Dress

    Crochet Black Dress

    This Beautiful Crochet Mini Dress is similar to the first lace mini dress, but with a crochet look instead of lace. The sexy, yet classy style features a crochet bodice, a-line waist and long illusion sleeves. This dress also comes in red if you're looking for a more bold color.

    Winter White Dress

    Shail K 3665

    You can also rock long sleeves in a white dress with Shail K. 3665, a 3/4 sleeve mini that's truly a piece of art. The fun beaded design sets this dress apart giving it a stylish, lively, one of a kind look that's so easy to dress up for a more formal part or down for a more casual dinner.

    Red Lace Cocktail Dress

    Alyce 4416

    Red, green, and blue are always staple color choices for the holidays if you want a brighter look. We especially love Alyce 4416 because it's a classic cocktail dress look that will never go out of style. From its v-cut neckline, open back, and rhinestones sprinkled upon the sheer lace sheath over linking, this dress is sure to be a crowd pleaser no matter what the event. You can easily add a cardigan over this dress for a Thanksgiving dinner, and drop the cardigan for some night time fun. This dress also comes in colors Black/Nude, Blue Coral/Nude, Burgundy/Nude, and Deep Plum/Nude, all perfect colors for any holiday event.

    Classic LBD

    Sherri Hill 32006

    While the first two dresses we mentioned are great black dress choices, if you want a more classic form fitting LBD, go with Sherri Hill 32006, a short jersey and lace dress. This totally versatile dress features cap sleeves, lace bodice, a v-neckline, and a stretch fitted jersey body. This is definitely a dress that you can easily wear time and time again, from Fall and Winter right into Spring and Summer.

    Whatever you end up wearing for your Thanksgiving dinner, have a wonderful time hanging out with your family and friends!

  • Betty Cantrell Miss America 2016's Winning Dress

    Everyone's been talking about our new Miss America 2016, Betty Cantrell. She stunned all of the judges during the 95th Annual Miss America pageant, and all eyes are on her to see what she has planned for changing the world during her reign. Her operatic singing was obviously incredible, but there's one thing from the pageant that we're still totally obsessing over: the dress that she won her crown in!

    Did you recognize the gown she wore on her big night? The Miss America 2016 winning dress is by one of our very own designers: Panoply, which is part of House of Wu! Former Miss Georgia wore Panoply style 44284, a stunning two-piece evening gown that features an off-the-shoulder 3/4-length sleeve trimmed in bugle beads and AB stones. The skirt on this gown is a very fitted mermaid in Mikado that starts with a beaded waistband and flows into a generous explosion of a two-tiered mermaid skirt, and finishes with a sweeping train.

    This two piece mermaid gown is such a glamorous look for not only a pageant, but for homecoming or prom, as well. And, with winter right around the corner, this is also a great choice for winter formal events... because it never gets more classy than winter white! All that you'll need to add is your very own crown to top the look off. This is definitely a one of a kind gown, and one that you can rock yourself, which is our favorite part about this look.

  • Selena Gomez in Winter White at the Golden Globes After Party 2015

    While watching the Golden Globes is so much fun, the party (and stunning looks) never end at the awards show. The fun always continues at the after-parties, and all the celebs have even more gorgeous looks to show off! The looks worn at this year's Golden Globes after parties were just as stunning as what was worn on the Golden Globes red carpet.

    While we're obsessing over so many of the outfits, there's one that stood out from the crowd for us: Selena Gomez's sleek and sexy plunge neck gown! We love the idea of rocking white well past the summer months, so to see Selena stand out in white during a winter awards show gave us the chills (in a totally good way, of course)!

    Selena rocked the sexy plunge of this dress in such a classy way. She kept the accessories simple (and classic with a gold purse), and we love how she topped the whole look off with a soft red lip color. This look screams old Hollywood to us!

    Our favorite party, though? That you can easily rock this look for prom! Go with Jovani 22884 to get the same exact sleek and sexy white plunge neck gown look. It's a sexy jersey gown that features a plunging neckline and a low open back. Choose the Off White color to get Selena's look, or go with one of the three other colors this classic dress comes in: Navy, Black, or Red. Which ever color you choose, this is a dress that will definitely have you feeling like a celebrity walking the red carpet!

  • Dress of the Week: Scala 47631

    With Christmas less than a week away, you can guess that this week's Dress of the Week post is dedicated to being Christmas party ready! And, there is definitely no better dress to pick than Scala style 47631 for such a holiday event. Why? Because the dress comes in the two most important colors of the holiday: red and green!

    Scala 47631_red

    That's not the only reason why we love this dress for a Christmas party, though. It's a classic (and classy) style cocktail dress that can easily be dressed up or down, depending on how dressy your holiday party is. Not only that, but this dress features an open back, cap sleeves, and an all over beaded bodice, which are all such on-trend styles right now!

    Scala 47631_emerald

    It can be difficult to find the perfect dress to wear to a Christmas party, as you really want to make sure you choose an appropriate style that doesn't show off too much skin. THIS IS Especially important if it's a party where you will be around your family members!  That's another reason why Scala 47631 is so perfect when it comes to the holidays - the length of the dress and cap sleeves make it so appropriate for any event, showing off just the right amount of skin. We'd just also recommend to bring a cardigan, just in case you feel like it would be good to also cover up the dress' open back. Plus, with the colder weather, it's always safe to have a cardigan with you!

    Best yet, this dress also comes in colors black, ivory, navy and sand, so if you don't want to wear the classic Christmas colors but love the dress, there's definitely plenty of colors to pick from! With all of the colors that you can choose from, also a great dress for a New Year's Eve party. We'd recommend rocking it in navy or black for NYE. White would also be a fun choice for NYE if you really want to stand out, especially with how popular the Winter White trend has been!

  • Brandi Cyrus Looking Perfect in Winter White at the AMAs!

    Miley Cyrus and her older half-sister Brandi Cyrus stunned all as a matching duo at the 2013 American Music Awards this past weekend, because they were both looking so sheek in white! Miley Cyrus may be the star of the past few months, and she did look so lovely in her white suit, but we're so in love with Brandi's long sleeve cocktail dress.

    brandi-cyrus-miley-cyrus-amas-red-carpet-2013

    White has been so in this year, and people will be wearing it well into the colder months. And,  Miley and Brandi definitely wore the trend perfectly! But, Brandi's look had us thinking of the Holidays, because her short number is definitely a perfect look for not only the AMAs red carpet, but for a Holiday party, too!

    If you want to wear this look to your Holiday event this year, we have so many white long sleeve cocktail dresses to choose from. Below are two of our favorites!

    precious-formals-l9034

     

    Precious Formals style L9034 is a fun way to add a little glam to a white cocktail dress look like Brandi's. Silver groups of sequins accent the body, scoop neckline and sheer long sleeves of this chic-and-flirty dress.

    shail_k_kk3138

    Shail K. style KK3138 is just like Brandi's dress, just with a deep v-neck and 3/4 sleeves. It's an easy look to dress up with bold jewelry and sparkly heels, or keep toned down with simple accessories.

  • Get Ready for your Winter and Holiday Formals with A Roo Girl!

    The most exciting part of having an upcoming event is picking out the perfect outfit, which goes far beyond just the dress. You also have to make sure you have the perfect hairstyle, make up, and shoes to truly complete your outfit! Because of all these important aspects of putting an outfit together, sometimes it can turn into a lengthy process, especially if you have no idea where to start! So, we're going to show you how we get ready for our special events in four easy steps! Read on for easy steps to get ready for a winter inspired dance or formal event.

    Step 1: Pick which dress length you would feel most comfortable in. Since you're going to a formal event, you'll be walking, sitting and probably dancing. Therefore, you want to choose a dress that doesn't keep you from the fun! And, of course, one that you love!

    Blush style 9800We chose Blush 9800, a floor-length, powder blue/nude mermaid gown!

    Step 2: Now that you've picked your perfect dress, it's time to move onto shoes. We tend to go with heels for most formal events, but if you're not comfortable wearing heels you could always go with a dressy pair of flats, especially if you plan on wearing a long gown that will hide the shoes anyway! Listed below are Sizzle by Coloriffics Andes and Touch Ups Dale - two shoes that we'd love to wear with Blush 9800!

    If you want to go with fancy flats, Sweetie's Anne Ballet Flat is a great choice! They are the perfect shoe to sweeten up any social occasion dress, and with them coming in 3 different colors: Black, Nude, and Silver, there's definitely one to match your dress. Continue reading

  • Latest Must-Have Fall & Winter Trends

    Each year, fashion gets more and more unpredictable. With so many great trends to follow this Fall, we had to narrow them down to just three.

    Lots of rule-breaking trends this season, including the always infamous no white after Labor Day rule. These rebellious celebs are going against the rules of fashion by keeping white throughout the fall and winter. It's all about how you accessorize and the type of fabric.

  • Winter White Fashion Trend

    Wearing the color white is usually reserved for the summer months, but this year it's been given new life, with celebs and fashionistas wearing the color well through the winter! Taylor Swift has been seen wearing the color at a handful of red carpet events, with her rocking the color most recently at the Grammy Awards.

    Taylor Swift at the 2013 Grammy AwardsWhile it's not the most practical of colors, we love white because it brings elegance to any outfit. When it comes to wearing it, don't try to match shades - embrace the subtleties that comes with wearing pure white vs. ivory vs. cream, and don't be afraid to match different textures and fabrics. Don't wear white tights with the outfit, otherwise you risk starting to look like a ghost! Most importantly, any questions alluding to Labor Day are best simply ignored - they clearly just aren't a fashionista! Wear the color with confidence and pride.

    If you have a formal party to attend soon, it's definitely a great color choice to feel part of the Winter Wonderland with all the snow that's been falling lately! Or, if you want to wait to rock it at prom, the color has clearly become an on-trend choice to wear year round. Our favorite white dresses are below - check them out!

    When it comes to the classic evening gown, we love La Femme style 18631. It's a sheath gown with a v-neck fully embellished bodice flowing into a chiffon skirt. The back has thick embellished straps that form an X in the middle, and dips to a low open back.

    La Femme style 18631Tony Bowls TS11368 is perfect if you're looking for a short prom dress or cocktail dress for a Winter Formal. It's a strapless dress with a sweetheart neckline, silver studded bodice, and a gathered illusion skirt.

    Tony Bowls Shorts style TS11368For the ball gown look, check out Tiffany Designs style 16901. It's a strapless sweetheart ball gown with an iridescent stacked sequin bodice, a chunky A.B. rhinestone belt, and a full tulle ball gown skirt. It's a true princess gown!

    Tiffany Designs style 16901
